THE LOCATION

Belchamp Walter is a very pretty village set on the Essex and Suffolk borders in the lovely countryside of the Belchamp Brook Valley. It is the prettiest of the three Belchamps and this property is set at the centre of the village next to the famous duck pond and surrounded by other most attractive period houses and cottages. The really old part of the village is further down the road by the parish church and Belchamp Walter Hall, the home of the Raymond family continuously for over 400 years. The surrounding area contains lovely walks and countryside, and with many other attractive villages. The nearby market towns of Sudbury and Halstead each provide a great selection of shops, schools and recreational facilities and there are good road links across to the A120 and M11. Trains for London can be found at Sudbury (with a change at Marks Tey) or at Braintree or Witham, all for Liverpool Street.

THE PROPERTY

Ashcroft is a detached bungalow built in around the 1960's with traditional cavity brick walls and a tiled roof. In recent years it has been extended and completely refurbished inside and is now presented very well throughout. There is a good drive with plenty of parking and a decent sized single garage and potential for vehicular access down alongside the bungalow. The accommodation is presently arranged to provide a small independent annexe with bedsitting room and bathroom but a connecting door could be knocked through to incorporate it into the main living accommodation. There is also great potential to enlarge the property in the roof, subject to planning and building regulations approval. A particular feature of the house is its exceptionally large garden. Oil fired central heating is provided.
